  • Someone is sliping guest the date rape drug.

    9.4
    I thought that this was a great episode of Las Vegas. I really liked the main storyline for the episode with someone going around slipping girls the date rape drug. I felt bad for Delinda that she was the first victum but i was glad to see her beat the guy up. I thought that was funny to see. I found it really funny that Danny brought in some MIT students that were staying at the hotel to help solve the case those guys were really funny. I thought that this has to be one of the best episode so far.moreless
  • Best episode since the pilot.

    9.3
    I believe that this episode was the best episode so far since the pilot. I liked it for a number of reasons for one for the first time we see one of the main charactors in danger Ed's daughter and Danny's ex. Anyway in this episode the crew have to hunt down a man who is drugging and raping women in the local area. Eventually with the help of some computer nerds Dannny is able to track down the guy and save the day. Overall i think was a good episode, the plot was very exciting and fresh. I think that more episodes should be like this in the future.moreless

    • When Danny catches the MIT guys in the bushes, his hands keep changing position from front to back.

    • Most of the shots show the passed out guy with a bent leg. Just before the kids put the sand in his drink, there is an air shot of him with a straight leg, once they pan in closer, his leg is bent again.

    • When the rapist first spots Sam at the pool, she is only wearing a bikini, once he sits down and attempts to chat her up, she is wearing a black sarong over the bikini.

    • When Ed takes the rapist out to the desert and tells him to take his clothes off and dig his own grave, we see him with his pants on but the next scene he is wearing his boxers, and the scene after that he is back in pants.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Danny: (voice-over) Another Groundhog summer is in the books. And tomorrow, another 300,000 people come to town to celebrate somethin' else. For us locals, it's a reminder that no matter how bad it gets, in Vegas, we take care of our own. No matter how crazy it gets, the party never stops.

    • Sam: Only two more days before we stop being a two billion dollar summer camp.

    • Danny: (voice-over) Groundhog summer. For everyone else, summer's over after Labor Day, but in Vegas, we get an extra six weeks. And on that last weekend, before we close the pools for the season, Vegas throws the biggest pool party of the year. This year, Groundhog summer happens to fall during the sci-fi convention. These people really freak me out.
